Thunder Bay – WEATHER – Its Monday. Weather conditions across the region are going to be summer-like.

The provincial stay-at-home order and provincial lockdown continues for Ontario.

COVID-19 numbers are slowly dropping across Ontario. It is possible however that there will be a spike by later this week after some major public gatherings in Toronto this weekend. Protests against COVID-19 restrictions and the current situation in the Middle East in the Gaza brought people onto the streets of Toronto.

Let’s be blunt, the restrictions are a pain. The alternative however is that we will see this third wave become a fourth wave.

Keeping in our social bubbles is causing increased angst for many.

The key to this is simply using your brains. Learn new skills, get out and get some exercise, learn to put away the smartphone for a bit, actually talk in person with your family.

Many people are struggling through this. Some of the cures are easy to say and hard to do. Put down the bottle, alcohol never solved real problems. Put down the bong, you’re not in a Cheech and Chong movie. “Dave’s not here”. Focus on setting positive goals and achieving them.

Call a friend you have not talked to in a while. Find positive ways to move yourself forward.

You can do this: Remember, “You’re Beautiful”.
